“Spectacular Riad with lovely decor and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2009

On entering the Riad you are amazed by the incredible decor. The ceilings and furniture in the public areas are lovely. The rooms themselves, whilst small, are nicely presented and opulent. If you manage to get a sea view room, the view is also spectacular, as this is one of the few Riads right on the ocean.

Pros:- Decor, Service and location

Cons:- My only minor issue was the stairwell lighting, which wasn't good and you need to take care

If you have heavy luggage, hire a man with a trolley as vehicles are not allowed within the old town walls and the streets are crowded and narrow.

We stayed two nights here and could not be happier. We upgraded and received a room with a sea view and was very, very happy with it. The view is amazing-definitely worth the extra money. The room was clean and well managed. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was served on the roofdeck which had gorgeous views of the ocean and city. Loved this place and would definitely stay here again!

I read different reviews of this riad - some positive, some negative. Again coming from the Riad Fes we were quite spoiled, but I would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly and the view from the rooftop is amazing. Some people complained that is was "musty" on the reviews on Trip Advisor - but what would you expect? This riad literally sits on the edge of the ocean, it's pretty amazing. I liked the spot, it was tucked back along the ocean wall, but yet very close to the souks. It's very easy to find your way around Essaouira. The rooms aren't fancy, but it's comfortable and very quiet. I would recommend this riad.

We had a wonderful stay in Riad Mimouna which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The soothing sound of the gentle waves helped us to sleep soundly and then to wake up to the sounds of waves and seagulls was perfect!
The riad has been tastefully decorated using traditional interior style and sumptuous fabrics have been used for curtains and bed linens and cannot fault this riad at all! I highly recommend a stay at this Riad.
Riad Mimouna's breakfasts are great; orange juice, fresh croisants, Moroccan fresh bread, boiled egg, fruit youghurt, butter , honey, fruit conserves and endless helpings of fresh hot coffee and last but not least a 300ml of bottled water and all this is standard!
I would most definately stay at Riad Mimouna on my next trip to Essaouira! 10 out 10 is what I would give to this lovely riad for its opulent look, cleanliness, good breakfast and its location!

Riad Mimouna is in an incredible location. The sea crashed against the sea walls just below our window. Our room was nicely furnished and had a very nice bathroom. The rooftop terrace has a gorgeous view and is a nice place to relax. We had to leave for home before the breakfast room was officially open, but the staff kindly accommodated us anyway, with fresh-squeezed juice nd delicious croissants and rolls. There is free Internet access from the lobby. I also noted the mustiness, but it is to be expected given the age and location of the riad. Note that it is in the medina and taxis cannot drive in there, so you will have to carry your own luggage for a few blocks, or hire a man with a cart.

This hotel was a great value for money. It is very clean, well decorated and well-kept. It’s centrally located and has magnificent views of the sea though not all rooms come with a view of the sea. The breakfast was served outside on the roof and while it was a bit cold in the morning, it was a terrific way to start the day. The staff is very friendly and speak English very well. It’s a bit dark in the lobby area, but that not surprising given how tight and close all the buildings are in the Medina. We highly recommend this hotel for a truly Moroccan experience.
